Winemaker's Notes:

Cool vintage resulting in wines of high aromatic potential, perfectly expressed in this Reserva. Silky mouthfeel, fresh and long, with lingering minerality.
My Notes:

About Bodegas Alejandro Fernandez:

Original bodega founded in 1972. A living icon of modern Spanish wine, Alejandro Fernández was one of the first in his country to return to biodynamic, low yield viticulture in order to produce concentrated oak-aged red wines capable of extended bottle aging. Currently under vine are 500 acres, almost exclusively Tempranillo, in a range of soil types including a locally-rare gravel deposit. Following development of new wine estates in the 1990's current vintages are of unprecedented quality. The 'Master of the Tempranillo', now at the peak of his career.
